Hotel is conveniently located for many activities on the island, including the beach, Pearl Harbor and Honolulu tours, shopping, dining, etc. and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We did have a problem with the concierge which told us the bus pick up location for the Pearl Harbor tour had changed due to a parade (pick up time was 6 am so it seemed a bit questionable). In fact the location had not changed and we missed the bus to Pearl Harbor at 6 am. Thankfully, we were able to get on the 8:30 am tour but it significantly impacted our planned activities for our short stay.
We were very pleased we stayed there as it is small and homely, with a nice garden and pool area, very relaxed atmosphere and great location central to everything! Only a short walk to the beach, central Waikiki shopping and eating areas and markets. Would be very happy to stay there again and recommend this place to anyone. Very glad we did not stay in a high rise appartment or hotel.
Waikiki established its reputation as a getaway when the Moana Surfrider opened its doors in 1901. Today, more than 30,000 hotel rooms are packed in the skyscrapers along the golden sands of Waikiki Beach. At the end of Waikiki, Diamond Head towers as an enduring landmark. West of Waikiki, Pearl Harbor offers a somber testament to history and the victims of World War II.
